Lately I’ve been battling a bit of a spam comment problem. I’m talking 1500+ spam comments a day!!! Akismet correctly identified the comments as spam but wasn’t really doing anything to stem the flow. Anyway I’ve installed a couple extra plugins to see if I can block the spammers but it means that you will have to check a check box confirming you are not a spammer before hitting submit on a comment. I hope it does not discourage you from commenting because I love reading them!! Please let me know if you have any troubles at all.
PS I would appreciate it a ton if a few of you tried commenting on this post to test things out. THANKS!
